Abstract
    Does the submission that the Baltic Sea is the world’s most regulated international marine area also apply to maritime boundary delimitations? Probably so, according to this chapter, which addresses existing and past boundary agreements in the Baltic Sea. Following a general review of the law applicable to maritime boundary delimitation, it is concluded that even if the Baltic Sea is already fully covered by coastal zones, and that the areas of high seas or deep seabed have thus disappeared, there are still some outstanding issues and overlapping claims. Nevertheless, such a degree of completeness is unique in international comparison and, what is more, all boundary agreements in the Baltic Sea have been settled by negotiations, outside courts and tribunals.
